Windows 7: Issue with Wifi after Malware removal.

Issue with Wifi after Malware removal.

Hello,



Now at first, I was hesitant on joining the site, because I was sure there'd be a valid solution, but there isn't. I seemed to have, pardon me, but 'screwed myself over.' I was following the advice of an earlier post dealing with this problem. Seeing as it worked fine up until I used Malwarebytes to remove conspicious software, I believe that malware had gotten into my network adapter, thus keeping me from using wireless internet connection after removal. I would connect, but the 'i' displaying that the connection was not going to allow me actual internet connection.

Following the advise of a post on this site, I uninstalled the network adapter in hope that it would reinstall. But after removing it (and promply restarting my computer), it did not reinstall on launch. I am very desperate for a proper solution at this point, because I absolutely do not wish to take my laptop to the shop and add another bill to my worries.

My computer is Windows7 Home Premium. It has an Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU @ 210GHz with 3.00 GB of Installed ram, and it's a 64-Bit operating system. It utilizes Intel My Wifi Technology, but I am unaware of anything beyond what I posted (seeing as I did not note the name of the adapter before removal.). Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

P.S: I have this page bookmarked, and will be checking by the hour, making me available at any time for questions that would aid the solving of this problem.

P.S.S: The link for the advice post is Limited Access - wifi problem - occured after malware removal

As far as Network adapters, It shows two Bluetooth devices, and a Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller. There's also an 'Other Devices' Area that shows "Network Controller" with the signature Windows Caution sign displaying an issue.

Was this it? Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 1030

If so you can download the 64bit drivers from here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Deta...?DwnldID=20123

Top One is driver only 8.5mb

I will try it and see how it works.

I will be back if it doesn't, for now I'll get to it.

I'm curious about mrt. Does it ever get updated? Or is it just static. Appears to be useful but it could become out of date and therefore not as effective.
